Forgive me, I did misundrestand you. Nonetheless I disagree with the conclusion. Leavers celebrating no deal back on the table and getting their villain of choice assuming the EU refuse an extension are overlooking the EU's calculations in this. It's the highest of high stakes, they must now decide whether to gamble on the UK crashing out or revoking and there are probably sufficient votes in the chamber to revoke & Bercow will facilitate it.
